Our Centers

Incorporated in California in 1975, Chinmaya Mission has now grown to over 49 centers in North America, serving over 18,000 registered Bala Vihar® attendees gaining the knowledge and wisdom of our scriptures. Bala Vihar is a weekly gathering of children, between the ages of five to fifteen years that takes place in Chinmaya Mission Centres or in private homes, under the supervision of trained teachers. The other offerings are Adult Study Groups (Vedanta & Devi), CHYK, JCHYK for the youth, Setukari for the young adult, Jnana Yagnas  and Swaranjali(the musical wing of Chinmaya Mission).

Silently hear everyone.  Accept what is good.  Reject and forget what is not. This is intelligent living.

Don’t just invest on the child, also invest in the child. ‘Investment on’ gives outer prosperity. ‘Investment in’ ensures inner unfoldment and lasting prosperity. True education is ‘investment on’ the child complemented with ‘investment in’ the child.

Even though, there remains no duties whatsoever for me to perform in this world, still there certainly does remain something to be done: to constantly serve with devotion the feet of my Teacher by whose Guidance alone I have gained this wisdom.
